Radicals who stayed at the Polytechnic University campus in Hung Hom, despite repeated warnings to leave, started a massive fire at the school entrance to fend off police, who briefly stormed the campus and detained a few at around 5.30am on Monday.
On Sunday night, police urged everyone to leave the campus or risk "taking part in a riot", and also vowed to resort to lethal weapons if protesters continue to attack officers. Those that did leave were arrested immediately.
